My Landmark: a visual exchange between Chinese and UCL students

19 March 2015

UCL's Migration Research Unit is collaborating with photographer Liz Hingley for the 'My Landmark' project linking UCL and Chinese students as part of the 2015 UK-China Year of Cultural Exchange.

My Landmark: a visual exchange between Chinese and UCL students

Students are invited to take part in a visual  exchange with Chinese students by submitting an image under the theme landmark.

Deadline for submission is 31 March and all submitted  images will be featured  in a series of exhibitions in British and Shanghai Universities during 2015.


Participants should express in an image and caption what the word landmark conjures in your imagination. How does this word speak to you? Where does it take you? How does it make you feel? Where, or what, or whom, is a landmark to you and how would you communicate it to a student in China.

It might be a physical space or object, it might be a person, or it might be something more abstract, a sense, a feeling, a dream that captures the essence of the word landmark for you.

Organisers want to share with people in China what this word means to you, where it draws you, and how it inspires you, beyond border and cliche.


If you would like to submit an image please do the following:

  • Send jpegs between 3 - 5mb and a word  document to bccusst@hotmail.com
  • Title images with your name (e.g.  Brad_Jones.jpg)
  • In a Word document write a few words or a sentence to accompany the image
  • Please include your name, university and email  address.
